Time to Refocus!
Wanted to encourage others who may be facing some challenges in their own lives right now.
I think its easy to get down, especially when we're raising a special needs child, and the main reason is because we spend so much time working on their challenge areas...in our case for instance, we're focused on teaching our son to try new foods, stop spitting, using bad words, how to play better with other kids, learning to control his temper, etc. So of course we pay most attention to these areas...and often forget the accomplishments and goals we've already reached!
It doesn't mean we're negative people, in fact we've always made a point of praising Julian for every accomplishment, because we realize how hard he works to do the things that come so naturally to most of us. And who doesn't need encouragement and praise?!
Just...remember to refocus now and then.
While reaching for today's goals....don't forget yesterday's accomplishments.
